“Since the reopening of the Customs’ e-auction platform app.trade.gov.ng/eauction, some complaints and inquiries had been pouring in.”
He further explained that the complaints were “from those who tried unsuccessfully due to either invalid Tax Identification Numbers (TINs); inability to service e-wallet; poor network at their locations or any other reason which are all outside the jurisdiction of the Service.”
